Happy Friday! Here’s a really short novella for your weekend read about (of all things) zombies! This is by no means my typical read, but back in October I saw the synopsis in a post on Goodreads and I had to read it to find out what happened to Tabitha! Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

The world as I know it is over...
When I went to work that afternoon I never imagined that everyone around me would die. But that's exactly what happened. My small town of Pleasant, LA is now a dead zone, and I'm only one of a few survivors.
The streets are littered with the dead, but they don't remain down for long. We managed to find a few more survivors, including my next door neighbor. However, It's not enough. We're not enough. But out of the darkness, Kellan comes. And in the glare of his headlights, I realize we might just have a chance.
A chance to make it out of the zombie horde.
A chance to live some semblance of a normal life.
A chance to love...
Anything would have been preferable to that one moment when you find reality has just been blown to pieces and would never be the same again. That’s assuming you live to survive it.
Amazing novella! Wynters had me hooked from the very beginning, creating characters that I could easily relate to. The main character, Tabitha, is an eighteen year old who has just graduated high school and is trying to figure out what to do with her life. She’s working a dead-end job as a cashier at the local grocer when the zombie epidemic begins. She races to find her family and together with other survivors tries to learn what’s happened.
|The world had went to hell, but at least I’d have pretty toenails.|
The author does a great job of building a world that zombies exist. I could feel my heart in my throat as the characters literally ran and fought for their lives. I could visualize the attacks, gruesome and vicious. I could feel the terror that these characters felt and to me that makes one hell of a good writer!
Chock full of humor and suspense, I couldn’t set this book down. I read it in one sitting and cannot wait for its sequel!
